Concerns with Language in the Senate Cybersecurity Bill

CDT is concerned that the monitoring and countermeasures language in Section 701 of the Senate cybersecurity bill, S. 3414, is overbroad, especially when read in conjunction with the bill’s immunity language (Section 706).

We urge the bill’s sponsors and all stakeholders to work together to develop more focused language that would address specific problems in current law.  In the meantime, should the bill be taken up this Fall, we would support an amendment offered by Senators Franken and Paul to strike Section 701.
